At the start of their respective professional careers, it had appeared inevitable that the two Englishmen would clash in the paid ranks, with Price holding a win over Fury in the amateurs.
However, in April 2013 - two months after Price was knocked out by Tony Thompson - Fury made an impact on the world stage by stopping Steve Cunningham in New York and a showdown between the pair has never been considered realistic for over four years.
Fury went on to become world champion with a points win over unified title holder Wladimir Klitschko, but an ongoing saga with UKAD has contributed to the 29-year-old spending two years out of the ring ahead of a potential comeback in 2018.
Price has not fought since February when he was stopped by Christian Hammer, but the Liverpudlian has put himself forward as an opponent for Fury if a return goes as planned next year.
